re: Canadian stamp

For engraved stamps it goes as follows:

1 - An artist comes up with a design
2 - An engraver makes a master engraving of the artwork.
3 - A die is made from the master engraving which would be the inverse version of the engraving. Once the design is impressed on the die, it is annealed to harden the metal of the die. The die is placed on a transfer roll to impress on the plate.
4 - In some cases marks are made on the un-engraved large metal plate to arrange where the die should impress the design onto the metal plate.
5 - The die is impressed into the plate in every space where a stamp is intended to be printed. For most US definitive the plates would have 200 die impressions.
6 - In the printing process the stamp paper is impressed upon the plate to print the stamps. In the case where multiple colors are involved, there would be one plate per color, with the portions of the stamp design that are to be in the intended color. The stamp paper would need to be imprinted upon once for each color used.

re: Canadian stamp

When bits of paper or insects or whatever get stuck between the paper and the plate (which is quite rare) it is just a one-time printing fault. These are not sought after generally and not cataloged.

re: Canadian stamp

Thankyou for the response as that is what I'm after and as for getting my hopes up I wasn't. All I wanted was information and I got it from you.

As for doing more responses I'm not much with a computer and my daughter is here now helping me.

I was in a thread asking a silly question and I got the information I wanted and thankyou I joined this site as I wanted some information about a Canadian stamp and it has been good but I wasn't geting my hopes up I just needed some information about the stamp
